4 Causes Of Headaches And How To Prevent Them
From migraines to tension headaches, feeling sore and achy is never a good thing, especially if you’re at work, or unable to lie down and rest for some reason. There are several different causes of this type of annoyance and it ranges from person to person depending on environment and a few other different circumstances, but ultimately the end result is the same and most people wind up stuffing pain killers into their mouths to rectify the feeling. If you suffer from chronic headache pain you should visit your doctor and discuss all of the symptoms and what’s going on in your life when you feel them the most. After this you should pinpoint the kind of headaches that you’re feeling so you can try and change the behaviors or substances that bring them on.
It’s always been assumed that stress and tension caused headaches, but until recently it wasn’t a proven matter. Now through new studies it’s been made well known that tension headaches are caused by stress and anxiety that you might be facing in your life. Whether this is coming from the office or at home with the family, you need to find a way to cut back on this stress and learn a few relaxation techniques to help you get through the pain when it appears. Medical News Today explains: “Now, new research has linked high stress levels to increased occurrence of headaches - an association that has long been suspected.”
It may sound a little bit unrealistic but breathing exercises and relaxing activities such as yoga can go a long way to bring down your stress levels and get you back to your old self. In some cases you might want to try a massage and see if it helps you loosen muscles, especially around the back of your neck and shoulders where it could be tensing up the muscles in your head.
Believe it or not, gum chewing in young children and teenagers is another culprit of bad headaches. In adults this activity doesn’t seem to be such a problem, which might be due to the fact that it’s much less of a novelty as you get older, and although many adults enjoy chewing from time to time, your mouth has finished developing in a way that a young child or teen hasn’t been accustomed to, making it easier for them to hurt their jaw and cause tension in their face and head; “At Meir Medical Center's Child Neurology Unit and Child Development Center and community clinics, Dr. Watemberg noticed that many patients who reported headaches were daily gum chewers.”
This seems to happen more in girls than boys, which might mean that female children chew more gum than males, or it could be due to other unforeseen circumstances revolving around gender.
Although headaches tend to be an excuse for many people to avoid sexual escapades in the bedroom, it turns out that this might be for good reason. It’s been shown through different studies that sexual activity can actually trigger or intensify aches and pains in your head. Other forms of strenuous exercise and activity can do the same for certain kinds of people so it isn’t always sex related, but coital cephalgia is a real thing that happens in bedrooms all over the world. Health Central explains: “For some people, sexual activity can cause headaches and trigger Migraine attacks called coital cephalgia (headache), exertional headache, or exertionally-triggered Migraine.”
Fortunately, the same activity that causes headaches can also be a cure, but this is usually only if orgasm is reached. As you enter this level of pleasure and endorphins are released, pain can be dispelled by these natural chemicals.
The Wrong Diet
One huge factor in how you feel all over begins with what you put into your body, and headaches are no different. Everything from dehydration to a lack of appropriate nutrients and vitamins will change how your head feels. High levels of caffeine can make a huge impact on the way that you feel, especially if you become used to this and then stop ingesting it. Caffeine withdrawal can cause aches and pains and even nausea in some cases, but it doesn’t last long and is easy to overcome. Of course, you may also notice that some forms of headache and migraine medicine include caffeine as part of the treatment, so it all depends on your preexisting relationship with this chemical. Talking to a physician about which vitamin supplements you should be taking, or speaking with a nutritionist can vastly improve the way that you feel on a daily basis.
Lack Of Sleep Finally, another way that caffeine can impact your relationship with your head is through sleep deprivation. Eating things before bed, exercising at night, or staying up later than you should are all ways that you can upset your biological clock and cause irritation to your eyes and head. Unfortunately, once you’ve altered your sleep schedule it can be very difficult to get back on track, and many people find that opposed to what you might think, finding yourself suffering from insomnia doesn’t always allow you to find reprieve in the morning. Many people with sleeping problems can’t doze off at night and find that they’re just as awake when morning time arrives. Sometimes altering your diet, physical activity and stress levels can help you improve sleep patterns.
